Share this story:


Sarasota Memorial Hospital has begun the process of getting state permission to build a 200-bed hospital in Venice. City officials said they think the facility, which likely would be built near Laurel Road and I-75, would benefit the city, while North Port officials expressed disappointment that a hospital there will probably be delayed longer.
